- Where are your shoes?

- I have a blister on my heel.

A blister can be serious.

You should see a specialist.

Have I a gas-mask case to go with this suit?

Monsieur Cortot insists I take one.

You know how men are about the war.

Overgrown boys.

They'd be happy if they wore only uniforms

and played with tanks and planes all day.

Thank you.

Forgive me for running, darling.

Oh, send them all down to me,

and I'll return the ones I don't like.

Have you tried having your shoes

made to order? Hurry, Genevieve, hurry.

Pack up.

Who does she think she is?

Who do they all think they are?

The glory that was France.

What do you think, Monsieur Cortot?

Will my husband be home soon?

Eight months he's been sitting

in the Maginot Line, knitting mittens for me.

Do you miss him so very much, Mathilde?

Yes. Well, we were used to one another.

Of course I miss him.

He was a good waiter.

You and your war.

Me and my war?

Is the war the only reason

you don't love me?

Michele...

It's become a routine, something you do

with your mind on other things.

Then I suppose I should tell you

about the other things.

No, not all of them, just one.

Is she pretty?

Beyond description.

- Young?

- Eternally.

What's she like?

Like you, in a way.

Spoiled, selfish, incredibly romantic.

- Do I know her?

- Casually.

Robert, who is she?

- You'll laugh.

- Of course I will. It's my only defense.

- What's her name?

- Her name?

Her name is France.

Michele, I've got a job to do.

Five years of work in five months.

Maybe five weeks, if that long.

That means concentration

and even devotion.

That means leaving every now and then

the private world you and I live in.

But on how well the job will be done...

...may depend the existence

of a world for anyone to live in.
